COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTAP) - The Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) is now offering online renewals for driver's licenses and ID cards to deployed military service members, their spouses and dependents.

Ohio BMV officials say renewing driver's licenses and ID cards online saves an average of two weeks by providing electronic access to those cards, rather than mailing a packet of information to be completed and mailed back.

The online system automatically uploads the renewal information into the BMV's processing system, identifies any incomplete or missing information and informs the customer of any issue preventing their application from being processed.

Online applicants will receive email notifications of the status of their application, including a notice when the application is approved and ready for payment, and can monitor the status of their application directly through BMV Online Services.
